Whatever your mood, there is a snack for you! They can satisfy cravings, help you watch your weight, boost your metabolism, and even help you deal with sadness. So, let’s take advantage of National Snack Food Month in February. Hoard your favorite snacks and munch away. Snacking doesn’t always have to be unhealthy. In fact, it can be a great way to eat more proteins, fiber, and fruits — thereby helping your body stay in shape. Happy snacking!
In 1989, an MBA graduate came up with a great idea to increase snack sales in the slow month of February. According to the Snack Food Association (SFA), the idea of the month-long munch-fest was to increase consumption and build awareness of snacks during a month when snack food consumption was traditionally low. The result has been a substantial increase in snack food sales during this month. The promotion kicks off on Super Bowl Sunday, and publicity is generated throughout the month of February. Their idea has stuck because we can’t watch the Super Bowl without thinking about what we are going to eat during the game.
